"It was a little different," Welker said. "It was great seeing Mr. Kraft and I have a lot of respect for him as a man and as an owner of a team. He's a good one."
SPREADING IT AROUND: After a bad first half, Brady started spreading the ball around. Julian Edelman had nine catches, Shane Vereen had eight, Rob Gronkowski grabbed seven and Kenbrell Thompkins added six. Edelman scored twice and Gronkowski once.
"Coach preaches to be a tough, smart football team and we weren't playing like that in the first half," Edelman said.
So in the second half, "you looked at everyone in the huddle and everyone was all business," he said.
